Author/illustrator Mo Willems began his career as a writer and animator for television, where he garnered six Emmy awards for his writing on Sesame Street, created Cartoon Network’s Sheep in the Big City and head-wrote Codename: Kids Next Door. Willems turned his attention to picture books in 2003 with Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, which was awarded a Caldecott Honor, and became a New York Times Bestseller. The book has been translated into a myriad of languages, been turned into a musical theater production, and hatched a series of Pigeon books including The Pigeon Finds a Hotdog! and Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late!
